Rubbing in: Carefully rub a hazelnut-sized amount (approx. 2-3 ml) of rath's pr88 into the hands - particularly into the fingernails and nail beds - before work, and leave to dry.

At work: A dry, stretchy protective film, that still allows good grip, protects the skin against dirt.

Washing off: After work, wash the hands by gradually adding water until the dirt loosens. Then rinse thoroughly and dry. The dirt is rinsed off together with the rath's pr88.
